3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
The first thing you notice is the "towering above the rim" frothy off white head ans massive swaths of sticky Belgian lace. The aroma showcases caramel malt and zesty citrus hops in equal measure. Very softly carbonated, this beer could use more bubbles to deliver some zing. Lots of yeast glisters but they do not affect the flavor.

orange color with a big white/offwhite head. Citrus, grapefruit and sweet malt in aroma. Pretty much the same in taste, quite fruity but with sweet maltiness, decent bitterness. Nice pale ale, really dont see this as an IPA though.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A little too much caramel and toffee for me and the hops, while solid, where taking much more of a back seat than expected. Soft bitterness with the noble hops, some citrus - ie grapefruit and orange rind, with a sweet finish. Decent, but not outstanding.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Medium sized very vast and beautiful equal creamy head on top of a hazy orange colored beer.
Smell is creamy malts and vanilla but of course mostly or maybe close to equally divided there are the hops and floral hoppy notes, lovely hop fruits like peach, citrus and grapefruit (in a creamy jacket) and some flowers.
Very balanced and outspoken tatse of hops and malts.
Good bitter that keeps gently growing, nice grapefruit and citrus fruit, lovely bouquet of hop flowers, creamy, balanced. Very good and guess itís on the border of being that so called fresh, on time to drink it. Perfect timing.
Aftertaste is good bitter, hops, hop fruit and bitter fruit and floral notes.
Low carbo, creamy silky mouthfeel, good balanced medium body and creamy texture.
Soft, smooth, balanced, tasty, bitter, hoppy and nice malty notes. Very good ipa!

Pours a hazy orange with a big white head that dissipates to a nice white top that leaves nice lacing. Aroma is Mandarin orange and citrus with some pale malt. Taste is mandarin orange up front that transitions into a pale malt with a nice smooth bitterness that tingles the tongue.

draught@erzbierschof - hazy reddish-orange beer under a solid and firm head left; pretty soapy aroma with some flowery hops; moderate malt backbone, velvety palate, unclean bitterness; residual sugars, chewy and flowery hoppy finish - not really convincing
